On July 15-16, 2011, Melinda Anderson participated in the Madison, GA home building project for the Rucker Family’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition brand new home build. There were over 1700 volunteers on this project and yes, the home was built in one week. Anderson volunteered on Friday night and Saturday morning when most of the hard work had already been completed.

Together with a group of organizers representing the Georgia Chapter of  the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) our volunteer service included unloading the tractor trailer full of home decor and accessories and staging them in the garage for the designers to later place inside the home.

Anderson thought the team of professional organizers would have been unpacking and organizing the family’s belongings inside their new home, but no, all the items you see on the television episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition are NEW items! From the pots and pans in the kitchen cabinets to the clothes in the closet, everything is shiny and new. Talk about an Extreme Makeover!
